At this point in the season where do you think Mario ranks as an overall player among all NFL DEs? Remember, this is just for this season only and guys like Peppers and Taylor are having subpar seasons while Freeney is out for the year so you might as well throw them out of the equation. I think Mario is somewhere in the top 5-10 range and still climbing behind guys like Jared Allen, Aaron Kampmann, and both Giants DEs. I think that he is playing like one of the best DEs in the league right now, not only is he pressuring the qb but he is proving to be a rock against the run so far. There was only one play that stuck out where they broke off a long run on his side today and that may have been because of the way the DL was supposed to play on that play (I think Mario cracked down on the tackle and the other DL did too, like all of them shot into their left gap and Graham ran right off the tackles back on that play).
